Online college: is it for you? - Seth Stutman, Mass Appeal

Why are college students taking courses online? What are the advantages? What are the disadvantages? College planning expert, Paul Hemphill told us more. "Taking courses online means taking a college course by sitting in front of your computer instead of sitting in a classroom. And the advantages of going online are… First, it’s convenient – you’re at home, you can role out of bed, get your cup of joe, and walk over to your computer. Second, you don’t have to take notes – hit the REPLAY button on your screen and you get what you need. Thirdly, you can pick and choose what course you want when you want to view it – very convenient, and lastly, you save time on travel and save money on gas and auto expenses. Just so you know, about a third of college students are taking online classes."
